Discipleship
Discipleship

  • “Making disciples” versus “winning converts”

    • Matthew 28:18-20 (BAPTIZE and TEACH)

  • Conversion happens in two conduits:

    • Head through knowledge

    • Heart through love


Knowledge
Knowledge

  • Conversion knowledge manifests itself through belief in five things:

    • Knowledge of who God is

    • Knowledge of who you are in relation to God

      • Created in his image to honor and glorify him

    • Knowledge of what sin is and what it has done

      • Sin is any imperfection in the heart or mind (not just a “bad deed”)

      • Sin is in our very nature

      • Sin separated you from God

      • Sin turned your heart against him and to yourself

      • Sin requires punishment in order for God to be just

    • Knowledge of what God did for you

      • Sent his Son to take on human nature

    • Knowledge of what Jesus accomplished on the Cross and Resurrection

      • He became sin and was put to death in our place

      • His resurrection ensures our justification, regeneration, and our resurrection


Growth in knowledge
Growth in Knowledge

  • Growth in knowledge of the Scriptures

    • Bible Study (know what you are reading!)

      • Read, Study, and Observe

    • Hermeneutics

      • Interpret and Apply the knowledge revealed in the Bible

  • Growth in the knowledge of Theology

    • Doctrines: God the Father, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, man, eschatology, etc.

  • Growth in the knowledge of Church History

    • Apostolic, Patristic, Medieval, Reformation, Denominational Origins


Love

  • The love that is the fruit of conversion manifests itself in two ways

    • Repentance: there is a genuine recognition in the heart of what you have done and deserve and a deep sorrow for it.

    • In love for him, Embracing and Reflecting the Imago Dei (the Image of God)

      • Sacrifice: the surrender of all of your life to God in heartfelt response

      • Good works: manifestations of his Glory in you as his workmanship

      • Character: seeking to glorify Him in your values and virtues

      • Relationships: submitting all relationships to the supreme love of Him


Growth in love
Growth in Love

  • Growth in the practice of the Spiritual Disciplines

    • Praying: not just wish list praying, but self-reflective searching and supplication

    • Meditation: meditating on scriptures in prayerful reverence

    • Fasting: going without food and dedicating time to prayer

    • Worship: singing and praising God…even when no one is around


Growth in love continued
Growth in Love Continued

  • Growth in love for fellow image-bearers

    • Desire to assimilate into Christian community (take risks and be known!)

    • Love for people

      • Desire to bear the burden of fellow believers and allow other believers to bear yours

      • Love for those who are lost, in bondage, misguided, and even those who hate you

    • Seeking spiritual significance of spousal relationships, children/parenting because they are his relationships and not yours.


Growth in love continued1
Growth in Love Continued

  • Learning to Surrender to Love by growing through the four stages:

    • Love of self for self’s sake (because you worship yourself)

    • Love of God for self’s sake (because you still worship yourself, but you want help)

    • Love of God for God’s sake (because you recognize, in head and heart, who he is)

    • Love of self for God’s sake (because you recognize he made you in his image, and therein lies your worth)

  • Honest, Spirit-filled Introspection

    • Why do I think this way? Why do I act this way? Why do I feel this way?


Community
Community

  • “I am a city” versus “We are a City” (Matthew 5:13-16)

    • Philippians 2:3-16 (The Trinity as the example of Community)

    • Hebrews 10:24-25 (“stirring each other” for good works)

    • Galatians 6:2 (bear one another’s burdens)

    • Romans 12:3-13/Ephesians 4:15-16 (one body, many parts)

  • Community is

    • Pushing one another to greater knowledge

    • Loving one another to grow in love corporately (pushing people up the scale)

    • Helping one another reflect the imago dei


Growth in community
